Research Fellowship Opportunity in the Directorate of Human Robotic Exploration Programmes. ESA is an equal opportunity employer, committed to achieving diversity within the workforce and creating an inclusive working environment. Applications from women are encouraged. Post Internal Research Fellow PostDoc on Lunar Prospecting Instrumentation, Science and Operations This post is classified F2. Location ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands Our team and mission The Research Fellow will be based in the Lunar Lander Team of the HRE Development Projects Group. The Lunar Lander Team in the Directorate of Human Spaceflight and Robotic Exploration supports the initiation and leads the implementation of near to medium term lunar exploration mission studies, technology development and flight projects. Current activities include the development of PROSPECT and PILOT for the Russian led mission Luna27. These activities are defined to generate knowledge, technologies, expertise, capabilities and partnership to prepare for future human lunar exploration whilst creating new opportunities for fundamental scientific research. Interested candidates are encouraged to visit the ESA website www.esa.int Information on the PROSPECT Project. Fields of activitiesresearch Overview of the field of research proposed A Research Fellow is sought to engage in both independent and supporting research in preparation of future lunar exploration via the PROSPECT package on the Luna27 mission. Work topics include the investigation of specific problems related to the PROSPECT investigation in the areas of sample contamination, volatile loss and preservation, sensor calibration permittivity sensor, cameras and illumination unit, temperature sensors, and in particular the definition and optimization of PROSPECT operations concepts for maximizing the science output. Additional topics may include contributions to data processing, calibration and archiving of PROSPECT and PILOT data. The Research Fellow will work closely with the lunar lander team, to address important scientific questions that affect the PROSPECT design and performances. The candidate will also develop and refine PROSPECT operations concepts and related constraints based on inputs including review of test results regarding their impact on science performance and operations. This will involve working closely with the members of the PROSPECT User Group PROSPECT science team, members of the PROSPECT industrial consortium, and with colleagues in ESA including the PROSPECT project scientist, to perform multidisciplinary research in support of an optimized PROSPECT mission. The generation of technical notes in support of the PROSPECT development activities and of publications on performed scientific investigations is expected. The specific interests and proposed research of the Research Fellow will be taken into account and given priority where possible.
